    Could I ask does anyone recommend glucojuice over coke, orange juice & lucozade. I was shopping around and I do like the idea of it like not over treating hypos and it’s more concentrated in a little bottle. But it is a bit out of my budget compared to glucotabs.

    I find it easier to carry tabs, tbh. They’ll fit in a pocket if I’m travelling light. And I can stash packs everywhere!

    Having a tea break, just al ittle bit more of the kitchen to paint, then that area will be finished. I pulled out the cooker earlier ( why do I do these things) :rolleyes: and cleaned all the tiles behind it, the sides of the units too, sides of cooker and the floor, it's spotless now :angelic: :happy:
    I'm a little breathless, so having a break :)

    I'm a tabs woman myself - easier to carry around, shove in my desk, my bag etc.

    Have Dextrose for daytime hypos and mini cans of coke for the middle of the night. I find the fizz rises me quicker and I just down it and go back to sleep without worrying. It’s the only time I take 15 carbs for a hypo. In the day just one or two tabs and nothing else.

    I caught my sensor on the edge on the table and I forgot the adhesive is pretty tough - ouchie I think anymore pressure, it would have forcefully ripped off my arm. :eek:

    Normal service resumes today and with it a good glucose reading of 5.2. Swimming, then putting away rest of holiday gear. Not impressed with this rain though.

    5.8 this morning which I am very pleased with because I am in the middle of a bout of cystitis and did the online consultation with my GP. Waiting for him to phone today. I have no spleen and don't fight infection very well at all (very low white blood count because of the spleen and the other drugs I take). In the meantime cranberry juice is us!

    Good morning and wishing you a Diabetes-Gangnam style day. it's a sunny start to the day too.
    Awoke on a nice 6.5, after a 2.4 hypo last night, daughter spotted it, took charge and her boyfriend was there and he hadn't seen me with a hypo before, so was asking questions and was really interested. Daughter tested bf's blood and he was fantastic 4.5, he kept saying is it going to hurt and was quite nervous ( this is someone who wants a pilot's licence and is often high above the clouds, he loves Spitfires too) only 22 years old.
    Getting ready for work, so have a great Monday folks :)
